Release of Stephen Dodgson opera on CD - Margaret Catchpole

February 14, 2021

Recorded in August 2019 at Snape Maltings, this disc celebrating Stephen's Dodgson's Suffolk themed opera, 'Margaret Catchpole - Two worlds apart' has just been released on the Naxos label. As a Suffolk girl myself, the exploration of this legend has actually enhanced my appreciation of my home county, especially when looking at the Cobbold family's life in Ipswich, where I was born. I play Mrs Cobbold, Margaret's loyal and long-suffering employer. We had a lot of fun working on this project, which I hope can be heard in this debut recording. Click here to visit Amazon.

As Holofernes, Diana Moore combined military grandeur and suave seductiveness into a superb portrait of a warrior at play on the fields of love.
